Toledo Bend Fishing Report January 18, 2005
The lake is 169.36 ft msl almost a foot higher over the past couple weeks. High pool is 170msl. One generator is running full time. Water clarity on the north end of the lake is stained and clearing as you go south. The fishing has been steady across the board the last couple weeks. The Crappie are being caught in the deep creek channels on shiners and jigs in 18 to 25ft with some fish suspended in 13 to 15ft. Work the points and the bends of the creek channels and any areas holding brush or tops that have bait- fish will normally be holding Crappie. Alt copy goes hereThe Black Bass are showing up in the creek channels, coves and pockets. Everything from top water plugs, spinner baits, traps, tubes, jigs, finesse plastics and Texas or CR rigged plastics are all working at different times. On warmer days, the fast moving baits have produce best in shallow water while on colder days the jigs, tubes and soft plastics have produced more fish in deeper water. The White Bass are starting to show up in the river proper but the bite has been slow this week with the current and muddy conditions. Should only get better as they’ve started to make their annual migration up the river. Good reports of Catfish on trotlines.
